Option B. In your example, you're casting Gaea's Blessing , so it goes from the library to the stack, then from the stack to the graveyard after it resolves. It doesn't go directly from the library to the graveyard.

Or if you target someone else with a topcast Gaea's Blessing , they shuffle three cards in and you draw a card. What happens next?

A. You shuffle three cards from your graveyard into your library, draw a card, then shuffle the rest of your graveyard into your library because Gaea's Blessing was put into your graveyard from your library.
B. You shuffle three cards from your graveyard into your graveyard, draw a card, then put Gaea's Blessing into your graveyard when it finishes resolving.
C. Something else.

Gaea's Blessing's triggered ability to shuffle their graveyard triggers (note that it starts with the word "when"), it does not activate (there is no colon in the ability). When it does trigger, it shuffles their graveyard into their library. It does not have any targets, so Ground Seal doesn't affect it.

If I have Ground Seal in play on and the field, and Gaea's Blessing is then milled from opponents library to graveyard can Gaea's ability of shuffling their graveyard into their library still be activated or does Ground Seal negate that?

Sure thing! Ooh yeah Gaea's Blessing is a good option. It even has utility against reanimator decks.
I would actually argue that the 3 cmc dorks might be worth it despite the awkward cost since they cantrip with Reki and can feed into mana sinks, even if its just 1 extra mana. In fact, they may be stronger than other turn 4 options like Rhonas, Traxos, Polukranos, Questing Beast, or Nylea of the Hunt because the dorks cause your 6+ cmc cards to drop a turn faster. I think the damage output of getting your bigger cards out sooner might be greater than if you had an extra beater but slower plays.
Also Marwyn can potentially produce a ton of mana since you have so many effects that boost power!
Anyway I'm just nitpicking at this point. Your list is great as-is.

king-saproling: Thank you for all the recommendations; especially the cuts! It is much easier when people recommend cuts along with additions, instead of just spouting a bunch of possible other cards.
Chromatic Orrery: I try to avoid extremely large mana rocks, it is a huge tempo loss when they are removed as they often are.
Hope of Ghirapur: I may add it one day if my playgroups power level rises or more combos are being used. But it is unnecessary currently.
Throne of the God-Pharaoh: it mainly acts as a cantrip. I don't have enough sideways creatures to make a huge life total difference.
I have been meaning to add Ashaya, Soul of the Wild.
Gilanra, Caller of Wirewood, Marwyn, the Nurturer, Sanctum of Fruitful Harvest, Seton, Krosan Protector: I like the concept but I don't think I have the synergies to make them worth it, or in the case of Gilanra, like you said I have enough card draw. A 3 cmc mana dork isn't a great rate.
I will think about mana dorks. I do find that lands are safer in the long term though.
I might keep a Gaea's Blessing in my collection to add when facing mill decks.

Practically any Golgari commander could work, but Belbe, Corrupted Observer from the new set was what came first because of her ability to generate mana "for free" once a turn with cards like Lim-Dul's Hex.
Basically, you would use tutor chains to go get Ugin's Nexus, and something along the lines of Krosan Grip. You'd blow up your own Ugin's Nexus, and then use Mirror of Fate to get it back from exile, and cards like Gaea's Blessing and Primal Command to get back your Mirror of Fate. You would make sure to only put cards on top that you wanted, and play enough draw spells to draw back the essential pieces, and the mana given for each new turn would take care of that. Incidentally, the Lim-Dul's Hex would eventually kill everyone else.
